For $20k profit, they should be covered for many, many years.

Is it your site? it sounds that way, in which case you might make it a little clearer. if not, sorry for the question.

Re: New CBR954RR for $10....interested??

hey how about i run the same raffle for $10 each and only have 1500 people buy? double your chances?



i'm being sarcastic, but you get the point. how does a regular guy like me know this contest isnt going to be internally rigged anyways. i send my $10 off, a number gets called, i lose, big whoop. ya know?

Just an FYI...Todd at Cal-Sportbike is doubling the amount you spend on the raffle tickets to be applied as a discount at his store (buy $20 worth of raffle tickets and take $40 off your next purchase). Not a bad deal...

Re: New CBR954RR for $10....interested??

They've been running that for quite a while now (since at least last August), and still have 2239 tickets left to sell. According to the rules, if they haven't sold all 3000 tickets after 45 days, then they will hold the drawing after a minimum of 2500 tickets are sold. As it stands, it could be quite a while (if ever?) before they sell enough tickets to actually give away the bike.

So if I buy $120 in tickets, I can get $240 in tires for from Cal-Sportbike?

This "raffle" has been cancelled. The WERA board really beat this guy up. It's funny. LINK

Jesus that deteriorated quickly....must have been a lot of people having a bad day when they were posting to that thread.

One though/Spanner in the works. Since websites are a global medium what would happen if someone from a different country/continent won? Who foots the bill for delivery?

Im guessing that the organisers would be reluctant to ship the bike overseas (where it may not longer be legal) which leaves the winner to foot the bill of getting it there and making sure its legal. Bringing small items into Australia is shockingly EXPENSIVE, Ive got no idea what it would cost to send an entire bike. Probably wouldnt feel like much of a winner after getting that bill.

In fact it might be a better proposition to sell the bike to the country the raffle was based in then convert to local currency (hopefully with a nice exchange rate) and buy a new bike locally. Which would also mean that you would a get far better support/service for the bike once you did have it. And probably less grief from insurance companies about an imported bike (they always love those!!).

Otherwise the raffle would have to be limited to certain country(ies). Which would suck even more!

Damn this global Village!!!
